    Parehong di ok ang acceleration ng city at sonic? I wonder how significant ang difference

    As an urban cruiser, I don't think the City 1.3 disappoints. Kung hindi ka naman kakarera, okay lang yung City. Kung gusto mo ng mas mabilis na kotse, sa presyo ng City, mag-Yaris ka nalang. 1.5 pa.

    Sa pagbili ng subcompact, wag ka lang magexpect na makakaarangkada ka ng tulad ng mga 1.6 pataas na sedan para hindi ka madisappoint. The Sonic underwhelms I think because for a 1.4, it doesn't pull very well, but I've yet to test how bad it is compared to other subcompacts, which are mostly slow anyway.

    Its a cruiser, perfect for the city. Stop and Go traffic.
    Get a higher HP/ 1.6L for satisfying acceleration.

    2008 city 1.3 gamit namin ngayon and kung similar lang ang acceleration ng sonic acceptable na sa min yun. Hopefully we can test drive the sonic to compare baka kasi nasanay lang sa 1.6 yung mga unang nag test :-)

    Its not the engine but the transmission. It's also heavier than the subcompact counterparts.

    Dropped by chevy san pablo kanina wala pang test drive unit pero we had a test ride sa likod ng sm. Can't comment sa acceleration coz hindi kami ang nakaapak sa gas pero kayang kaya ang sharp curves at speed humahagis kami pero yung sonic very stable. Kontakin daw kami pag may test drive unit na.

    Sa features wala talagang sinabi ang city. We also went to see the accent and lancer ex naconfirm namin mas maganda features at storage space ng ng sonic. Sabi ng misis ko ok lang daw di mabilis mag accelerate para di sya masyado mag overtake :-)

    Do a test drive sir. Then listen to what your heart tells you.

    for my own experience since my aunt owns a city 2010, and my friend has the sonic, mas may hatak talaga city during overtaking compare sa sonic, don't know if it's due the tranny. baka ganun nga design ng sonic, maybe for fc purposes?

    1.3 or 1.5 yung city? Is it hard for the sonic to overtake a slow vehicle?
